Everything an Indian Does Is In a Circle

Everything an Indian does is in a circle and that is because the power of the World always works in circles, and everything tries to be round...The sky is round and I have heard the earth is round like a ball, and so are all the stars.  The wind in its greatest power whirls, birds make their nest in circles, for theirs is the same religion as ours.  The sun comes forth and goes down again in a circle.  The moon does the same and both are round.  Even the seasons form a great circle in their changing, and always come back again to where they were.  Our teepees were round like the nests of birds.  And they were always set in a circle, the nation's hoop.

Community Resources

As part of its mission, CHV does its best to provide useful information for its members, including local resources that can help them live fuller, healthier and more active lives. In a big city like New York it can sometimes be a challenge to find such resources. We hope that members and friends will take the opportunity to review the offerings identified in this Community Resources area where volunteers have assembled a list under the headings of General Support, Volunteer Opportunities, Health, Education & Enrichment and Government. 

We also welcome suggestions for additions to the current list.
